City of Gardens is a new short film in the form of a personal triptych of video essays explaining how “The Garden is with me“. First within my life and art, second: how gardens have always been part of the green legacy of my city, and in part three, I present a sampling of recent learnings and influences on the social relevance of gardening. All in five minutes.
City of Gardens premiered at the 2017 Fast Forward Film Festival held at The Little Theater and the George Eastman Museum. The film took two top awards at this festival, including one of three juried Adult Category Award as well as the Adult Audience Choice Award.
It is currently available in a slightly expanded edition online at the Studio Michaelino Vimeo page. And each of the three parts may eventually grow into connected but individual longer (but still short) films.
